E CAMERON FA L’ELOGIO DELLA FEDE “TESSUTO SOCIALE”.

Sul Corriere on-line Maria Laura Rodotà parla con astio di Samantha Cameron, del suo look, del suo ‘ruolo’ di moglie modello, come se avesse qualcosa da insegnarle o una cattedra dalla quale giudicare, pur dichiarando che non ne parla per conoscenza diretta (“D’istinto la detestiamo. Anche senza conoscerla”‘).

Per conoscenza GIORNALISTICA dovrebbe però sapere che questa terza gravidanza segue di non molto la perdita di un figlio gravemente handicappato che è stato seguito e accudito dalla famiglia Cameron con enorme affetto.

Ribadisco la mia domanda: da dove viene tanto astio? invidia? autoreferenzialità?
E dove sta il peccato di Samantha? Dobbiamo togliere il saluto a chiunque non sia un vero figlio del popolo che si è fatto da sé come la Rodotà?

Avrei voluto chiederlo a Maria Laura Rodotà. Ma al suo articolo non è possibile fare commenti. Significativo?

Per chi non lo sapesse, è morto di recente il figlio maggiore, che era portatore di gravi handicap, di David Cameron, leader conservatore britannico. Le riflessioni di Cameron e della moglie  sul loro rapporto col figlio, hanno, tra l’altro, originato questo editoriale bellissimo.

I too am the father of a child with a congenital disability – my younger daughter, Domenica, has trisomy down_syndrome21, also known as Down’s syndrome. When she was born, an acquaintance who had a child with cerebral palsy told me: “Your problem won’t be that you will not love your new daughter, but that you will love her too much.” He was right, of course: it was a salutary warning not to neglect the needs of siblings.

Nine-year-old Daisy entered hospital in 2005 with a tooth infection, which turned septic. The hospital failed to supply the most basic medical care, giving Daisy neither food nor liquid in sufficient quantities. When she began gasping for breath the hospital told the parents that she would be transferred to intensive care, but this never happened. (…)

It turned out that this was not an accident, but deliberate, and an official report on the case is being prepared by the ombudsman. As Daisy’s mother, Amanda Healy, told me: “The staff later admitted to us that they had ‘misjudged her quality of life’.” In other words, they had acted under the belief that Daisy – who loved and was loved by her parents and who, in Amanda’s words, “adored just waking up in the morning” – had a life not worth living and therefore not worth fighting to preserve.

Ivan Cameron and the meaning of life
Dominic Lawson

Death is the great reconciler. It was only a few months ago that Gordon Brown savagely insinuated that David Cameron had been publicising his son’s disability for political ends: “I haven’t served my children up for spreads in the papers . . . My children aren’t props. They’re people.” Yet the prime minister’s unprecedented parliamentary eulogy on the death of six-year-old Ivan Cameron was as sincere as anything that can ever have been said in that chamber, heightened as it must have been by the recollection of the death of his own firstborn.

Proprio quando le decisioni si fanno più difficili (bioetica, finanza, …) , quando la gente ha bisogno di sperare la politica inglese (solo quella?) ha una fifa blu di parlare di religione.

A report published by the Church of England earlier this year accused the Government of “deep religious illiteracy” and of having “no convincing moral direction”

Earlier this year, Nicholas Sarkozy …. called for a “blossoming” of religions. “A man who believes is a man who hopes,” he said. It is ironic that politicians in this country have abandoned belief – at the very moment that the people need hope.

There’s a God-shaped hole in Westminster

Today’s politicians – whose favourite summer reading was The God Delusion – have never been more fearful of faith
Rachel Sylvester

The Archbishop of Canterbury likes to say that religion is getting increasingly political just as politicians become ever more interested in subjects that have traditionally been the domain of religion. For once, he has never been more right. (altro…)
